Hahataw kaagad sina 2018 Palarong Pambansa-bound Triza Tabamo ng Tarlac City sa girls’ 9-10 50m free­­style at Kiara Acierto ng Cagayan De Oro City sa girls’ 8-under 25m freestyle.

Babandera naman sina Aishel Cid Evangelista (boys’ 8-under 25m freestyle), Master Charles Janda (boys’ 9-10 50m freestyle), Trump Christian Luistro (boys’ 9-10 50m freestyle) at Nicholas Ivan Radovan (boys’ 11-12 50m freestyle).

Some of them are not used to this kind of weather but the spirit to win me­dals is there. We’re all set and ready to compete,” ani PSL President Susan Papa.
